Indigenous Commonwealth Education Costs Scholarship (ICECS)

Macquarie University

The Commonwealth Education Costs Scholarships (CECS) are available to Indigenous students to assist with the high costs of undertaking higher education. While the CECS have been replaced by the Student Start-Up Scholarships (administered by Centrelink), they will continue to be offered to Indigenous students in their existing form.
Eligibility Applicants must: be Indigenous Australian citizens of low socio-economic status; be commencing or undertaking a tertiary preparation program, associate degree, undergraduate program, or a graduate diploma in an area of National Priority as full-time Commonwealth supported students; and have not previously completed a bachelor degree or equivalent (except where it is an entry requirement for the current course). Tenure is dependent on satisfactory progress.
